80 Pleasant St., Norwell
Size: 2,098 square feet
To enter this idyllic Norwell estate, you’ll have to duck through an antique gateway and underneath a wisteria-covered portico where you’ll end up in a backyard oasis. There, two separate stone patios and a wooden deck provide ample space to host an outdoor Thanksgiving, and a sprawling fenced-in lawn allows pets to frolic around freely. And if those pets happen to be ponies, you’re in luck: The property includes a detached three-stall horse barn, which can also be repurposed as a sizable storage space in addition to the two-bay garage. And if you happen to drive an electric car, there’s a charging station on the premises, too.
Inside the farmhouse, vaulted ceilings accentuated by dark wooden beams set a warm, rustic tone. Wide planks of hardwood hug the floors in the living areas, while radiant tile flooring warms your feet up all winter in the kitchen and bathrooms. The single-level setup rolls easily from one room to the next, with small steps down into the kitchen and living room creating some dimension. From the foyer, you’ll walk into the third bedroom, which the current owners have converted into a workout room, then through the living and dining rooms into the home office with direct deck access. On the other side of the office, a larger, fireplace-graced family room and two sizable bedrooms round out the far end of the home.
The dwelling’s circular driveway is set back from the main road, affording a nice level of privacy while still being within a few minutes of Route 3. For an extra dose of environmental charm, a small pond also abuts the property. So whether you’re living out your horse riding dreams or charging up your electric car, you’ll relish the natural serenity that encompasses the home.
